Australia Woman Cricketer Banned For Season Over Instagram Gaffe

Hobart Hurricanes wicketkeeper Emily Smith was found guilty of breaching Cricket Australia’s anti-corruption code. She has been handed over one year ban, with nine months of suspension.

With this, she will be missing the complete Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) season and the 50-over Women’s National Cricket League.

Smith was banned for sharing a video on Instagram before the match against Sydney Thunders, which had the details of Hobart Hurricanes’ lineup. This might have led the individuals to bet on the games.

Cricket Australia’s Head of Integrity and Security Sean Carroll said, “CA’s rigorous anti-corruption player education program means that players are well aware of their obligations under the Anti-Corruption Code and there is no excuse for breaches regardless of the reasons for information being disclosed.”

He added, “Since the commencement of the WBBL, Cricket Australia has had in place a robust anti-corruption program”

Carroll said, “We have been working with Emily throughout the process and Emily now understands the mistake she made.”

In a video that Smith shared an hour before the match had the details like the restricted Player and Match Official Area (PMOA) of the West Park stadium.

Carroll said, “Unfortunately, in this instance, Emily’s actions breached the Anti-Corruption Code. We hope this serves as a reminder to all that the Anti-Corruption Code is critical to protecting the integrity of the game.”

Smith is set to replace with Tasmanian Tigers wicketkeeper Emma Mannix-Geeves for the rest of the season.
